New Research Shows Flu Shots Could Reduce Heart Disease

Posted: Updated:

 

     New findings show getting a flu shot this season may not only greatly lower your risk of influenza this year, it may also lower your risk of heart disease. A Canadian study finds that people who received the flu vaccine were 50 percent less likely to experience a heart attack or stroke, and 40 percent less likely to die from one, compared with people in the unvaccinated control group. They say the flu vaccine could be an important way to maintain heart health and ward off strokes and heart attacks.
